Back to School or Back to the Landfill?

 During most of August and early September the barrage of TV, newspaper, and magazine ads seemed to shout one clear message – It’s Back to School Time! While my two teen-age kids didn’t need reminding of that fact, especially during the last precious weeks of summer vacation, they were excited about one aspect – new school clothes. Every year in most U.S. households with school-age children, this shopping ritual involves treks to the mall and clicking through online catalogues. Aside from the Christmas shopping frenzy, back-to-school season represents the bulk of  new clothes sales for many retailers.

c. Some created woodlots and others made a hedge around the school. The school-going children were the prime participants in the planting of the trees, an event that also included a quiz on environmental protection and the benefits of trees with school materials as prizes. People appreciate the new knowledge about global warming and the role they can play by planting trees.
